Is Big Time Gaming still going strong? Is Yggdrasil Gaming still crawling in the dirt? Is NetEnt doing as bad as everyone claim they are? Let’s find out!

After enjoying a whole month on the throne, Big Time Gaming has now been overthrown by Play’n GO, taking back the first position once again. Since last checkup at the beginning of April, both providers have had another half a million spins added to their stats and both actually dropping in RTP; Big Time Gaming by -0.67%, and Play’n GO by -0.27%. This was the only shift in position on the chart during the month.

Yggdrasil Gaming, meanwhile, is still by far the worst performing provider at the time of writing. In fact, the RTP has dropped once again, going from a horrible 91.73% RTP to 91.54%. Although calculated with only 2 million spins, these numbers are quite shocking and could help explain the lack of Yggdrasil slots among the big win videos being uploaded to Youtube. Yggdrasil Gaming is the strongest provider when it comes to visuals and entertainment, but it seems their mathematicians are trying to pull a fast one on us.

Vikings Go Berzerk, a slot by Yggdrasil Gaming. The game currently has a 87.40% RTP in the Slot Tracker community stats, with 223,427 spins collected.

But as it turns out, Yggdrasil are not the only ones with bad numbers. Quickspin is another provider that has fallen from grace since the last checkup and now currently has a 91.94% RTP. Since there has only been 800k spins collected on Quickspin slots however, they are not yet placed on the actual performance list. We are not surprised to see these numbers unfortunately, as Quickspin’s latest releases have been low potential and hard to stay ahead on. We really like the provider though and hope that their upcoming title Dwarfs Gone Wild will give them a boost.

NetEnt is actually looking very balanced and strong, and is by far the most popular provider with 7.5 million spins collected. The RTP has been sitting around 96% for the last 6 months and has improved with +0.14% since the last checkup. Merkur Gaming is another provider that is being played a lot lately and has now reached over 1 million spins.

If you’re looking for a bonus game, Big Time Gaming is to stay away from, being the provider with the least frequent bonus triggers (1 in 218 spins on avg). As most of you probably know, this can be explained with Big Time Gaming being the most volatile provider by far, so less frequent bonuses are expected.

So where to go to trigger bonuses? It’s of course individual from game to game, but Play’n GO offers most bonuses on average with 1 in 36 spins. On the other hand, Wild North, and it’s clone Golden Colts, are known to be some of the most bonus frequent slots ever released.
